Fr. John D. Betters, Pastor of Ss. Robert & William Catholic Parish, is named Irish (Religious) of the Year
On March 3 and 4, 2012, St. John Vianney Parish held their 9th annual Celtic Ball and Hooley. This special event honors those of Irish heritage and celebrates the contributions they make in three areas: Religion, family and community.
Fr. John D. Betters, Pastor of Ss. Robert & William Catholic Parish, was honored as this year’s Religious (Irish) person of the year. He is of Irish descent with his maternal grandparents hailing from County Laois.
Father John was bestowed this honor for his commitment to Catholic education. “I was honored and humbled to receive this recognition and I share it with the staff and parishioners of Ss. Robert & William Catholic Parish,” he states. Included in the award is a donation of a portion of the event's proceeds which will be used for tuition assistance at Ss. Robert & William Catholic School.
